      Easy bet broke spot?

      When is it not? With what stats from villain you should consider folding?
      This guy it is a trappy zoom reg.
      What do we do against 2bb opener?
      Just make it a 12bb 3bet normal? I think he get ods to play SC now with 1/20 size of his stack to consider calling 3bet IP. Or do you want them in the pot with AA?

      Hey Yordi85,

      It isn't an easy go broke on flop. Vs unknown micro-stakes player it is very close. I wouldn't expect you will make much profit in the long run here, if any. You will be up against 88/99 most of the time, maybe once in a while AK or KK that wanted to min-raise pf and you block AK. Micro-stakes players don't bluff raise flush-draws here that much (i.e versus a cbet from pf 3bettor OOP). I'd probably fold flop.

      Of course it's not impossible that he can do this with draws either, so going broke is never going to be ridiculous. It'd be a lot worse on a dry board.

      Vs a 2x open I think your 3bet size is fine. You want to adjust your 3betting depending on open-raise size, don't just use a default size etc.

      Obviously you want calls with AA - and to an extent I think if players are calling with PP or SC they are going to do so anyway regardless of your size. Just keep in mind that AA suffers from reverse implieds and you have to be able to get away from it postflop in these smaller 3bet pots.
